Club members were treated to a fun-packed evening of entertainment at the SJT on Wednesday, April 12, as Shakespeare’s most bonkers farce “The Comedy of Errors” is brought to life in the eighties in the era of big phones and even bigger shoulder pads.

The play, adapted by Elizabeth Godber and Nick Lane, has mistaken identity, theatrical chaos and belting musical numbers from the Dream Academy’s “Life in a Northern Town” to Kenny Loggins “Footloose” sung with real energy by the whole cast.

An actor from Lancashire arrives in a Yorkshire coastal town to perform his ‘magnificent’ one-man show. Trouble is, there’s no audience – everyone’s booked for a Talent Show across the town starring the twin brother he’s never met.

His twin brother owes money all over town, has promised his wife a gold chain and is banking on winning the talent show to avoid getting in trouble with some unsavoury characters…

Will the twins discover each other? Will they learn how they became separated? Will either show go on at all? Well it’s too late to see the SJT performance as it ended on Saturday, April 15 and if you did not see it then you missed a real treat of two rival states; two sets of mismatched twins and one nutty day at the seaside.

The Yorkshire Post gave the play a 5-star review “Riotous, joyous, utterly bonkers, clever, chaotic”, similarly Opening Night gave it 5-stars saying “A fantastic farce that will have you laughing out loud from the very start”.
